Description of Incident:
Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are investigating the death of a man whose body was discovered in a canal in the 4800 block of University Drive in Lauderhill.
Lauderhill city workers performing routine maintenance of the canal found the body of the unidentified black male in the water at about 2:45 pm on Tuesday, January 22, 2002.
The man, with no identification or distinguishing marks, had no shirt but was wearing sneakers and what appears to be a pair of blue pants.
Investigators do not suspect foul play. They hope to have positive I-D later this week.
A planned autopsy should reveal the exact cause of death.
